I am guessing you’re sick of working in your freezing house with only Value tomato soup and your own sad face for company.
Help is at hand!
I was lucky enough to get a little bit of money from the Bristol City Council Creative Seed Fund to start Write Space – a co-working initiative for emerging and established writers, which will also benefit the wider community through workshops and events.
There’s a more formal blurb below (with contact details)- email me if you’d like to get involved.
Write Space is a new initiative for emerging and established creative writers based in Bristol.
Our aim is to develop Bristol’s exceptional and active community of writers – to offer them networking opportunities, co-working space and a chance to share skills. In return for this space and support, it is likely that we will ask members to lead or assist with at-least one half-day writing workshop with the local community over the course of the year. In this way we will cascade skills throughout our group and the wider community.
Write Space will consist of regular (initially monthly) co-working days for emerging and professional writers, based within Cheltenham Road Library.
These days are a chance for writers to work together without distraction (there is no Wi-Fi, although there are desktop PCs if you need to use them). Tea and coffee will be provided. As the library closes for an hour for lunch, we can (if we want to) eat together, chat, and talk about our work.
The first session will be in May. If you would like to be included on our mailing list, and find out about our first session, please email Amy Mason on firstname.lastname@example.org with some information about yourself and your work.
If you are a beginner, or just interested in the project, please get in touch too – there will be upcoming opportunities for writers at all stages of their careers.
